The New generation of debugger is just awesome.
I personnaly, prefer the Desktop 3 mode when you have two columns: ABAP code processing on a side and Variables Value in the other side.

  • /h : it is the basic command used to run the SAP standard debugger
  • /hs: it is like the first one /h with allowing the system debugging
  • /ha: it starts the debugger. All the screen processing will be skipped. The first debugging point is an ABAP instructure
  • /hmusa : it will start the ABAP debugger and create memory snapshot. This memory Snapshot can analysed with the standard transaction S_MEMORY_INSPECTOR
